Attention, amateur singers from Langley and Aldergrove — it's time to step up to the mic and show some national pride.

Sing Your Heart Out! — a Canada Day contest sponsored by the Langley Times, invites singers to record their best version of O Canada and upload the video to the newspaper's website.

It can be sung as a solo or with a group, as a traditional rendition or perhaps something with a bit of a stylistic twist.

Have fun, dress up, be creative — all that matters is that entries are submitted by midnight on June 15.

Voting will begin on June 16 and continue until June 22.

The winning singer(s) will be announced in the June 24 edition of the Langley Times.

At stake is $300 in gift certificates from local businesses. The winning act will also receive VIP parking at Canada Day/International Festival celebrations at Willoughby Community Park and the opportunity to perform their version of the national anthem live during the event, which runs from June 28 to July 1.

The contest is open to residents of Langley and Aldergrove. Professional singers are not permitted to enter.

There is a limit of one entry (maximum two minutes in length) per registered user.
